Re: Anyone happy with Dell-Ubuntu PC's?

So they sell old notebooks with Ubuntu? And an interesting post appeared
about notebooks with Windows and Ubuntu:

Thanks for all your input, I'll keep looking for a good laptop, probably will stay with Thinkpads but hate that MS-tax as much as the IRS.

Meanwhile I got the ThinkPad-600 working by grabbing the clock battery from a broken T20, splicing wires from both batteries (connectors do not match), and plugging it in.

I also have two old broken mini-laptops, Thinkpads 240 and 240x, but screens do not match so I just ripped screen side out of one and plugged it in to a monitor, runs fine. Laptops are great but parts are very incompatible. Desktop parts have similar problems although not as bad.
